Hello, everyone.

Here are a few images from a model workshop I went to the other day.

1.) Taken with the M 100 Macro. My first portrait with this lens. It's ever-so-slightly out of focus, but that's my fault. Models usually hold a pose for a few seconds; if you miss it, you miss it. They will repeat a pose if asked, but sometimes they don't know exactly which look you want them to repeat. Art, not science. This model was Tabatha.

2.) Also taken with the M 100 Macro. A little better on the focusing.

3.) Taken with the DA70.

4.) The second model, Melissa. Also taken with the DA70.

5.) Yours truly in the mirror. Proof I do own a yellow K-01 and a green Bogen tripod.

A word about model workshops to those who have not been to any.

Model workshops are usually semi-hectic to completely hectic The photographers and models are usually in a room about 20 X 20 feet, and some over-anxious or first time participants can forget that there are other photographers right next to or behind them. There is a good degree of bumping into, and crossing in front of your neighbor. For this reason, if you're using a prime lens and a tripod as I do, you can't always get the composition you want in a shot, so you have to take what you can get.

If you hire a model separately, it's much more expensive, but you then have freedom of movement, and the model's complete attention.

My first workshop in a few years.

Mike

Being hooked on my K-3 I sometimes forget what a great combo the K-01 and DA 40mm XS make. I just shot a quick off-hand frame to illustrate this chain-lube product in a bike forum, and it almost looks like a product ad.

Three with the CZJ Biometar 80mm f/2.8 from my Pentacon Six TL. I used a combination of a P6-to-Pentax 645 mount and a 645-to-K mount. The lens is a little heavy to use often on the K-01. Also, the focus throw from 1 meter up to infinity is close to a full turn, so I decided to keep it on the closeup end.

Very nice, ZombieArmy.

I love low-light /night/ astronomy shots.

Very fine photos as usual Rondec! I can almost feel the smell of the misty autumn mornings...

A straggler shot from a previous shoot that didn't come out quite the way I wanted but my buddy still really digs the shot so I figured I'd share it.
